  • Step 1

  • Prepare rice according to package directions. Let it cool completely and set aside.

    Step 2

  • Meanwhile, heat 1 tbsp of canola oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Pour in the beaten eggs. Cook, stirring frequently, for 3 to 5 minutes, or until the eggs are set like scrambled eggs. Transfer to a separate plate.

A Few Quick Tips:

Cook your rice beforehand and let cool or use day-old leftover rice for this recipe. When your rice is cool, it holds less moisture which ultimately will help your fried rice be less mushy. Have all of your seasonings and ingredients ready before beginning so that you can simply toss and mix in as you go. Feel free to omit the chicken if you’re looking for a vegetarian version or swap for beef, shrimp or tofu.
